But I've got boys, and boys want to know "if it's almost time to get out the cool Halloween stuff?" Even if we don't really have any (remember how we dealt with this before?)
When I saw this brilliant idea (with a full tutorial) I knew we had a winner. This household goes through at least a gallon of milk a day, so in less than a week we were ready to craft. The Sharpie came out, the kids got to work,and when we ran out of ink, some black construction paper, scissors and glue came to the rescue. They got stacked at different levels, and then covered with a black tablecloth and some leftover tulle. With the addition of some Christmas lights, we now have surprise, happiness, and.....uh....the results of letting them do it anyway they wanted. Works for me. The left over black paper got cut into letters and taped up, and for NO MONEY spent? Ghetto fabulous.
